Daniel Linskey is a Managing Director in Kroll’s Investigations and Disputes practice, and is head of the Boston office. As the former Superintendent-in-Chief of the Boston Police Department (BPD) and a 27-year veteran of the force, Dan provided strong leadership through some of the most tragic and contentious events in the city’s history, including the Boston Marathon bombings and the Occupy Movement. His presentation, Leading Before During and After the Crisis: A Case Study of the Boston Marathon Bombing Attack, utilizes lessons learned from the Boston Marathon Bombing investigation to show how departments should develop training and exercise programs to prepare their members to respond in a crisis. Participants will:
· develop individual training and exercises for their specific agency and assignment using Meta-Leadership to successfully navigate critical events;
· learn post event stress management techniques and procedures to effectively manage themselves and others involved in a critical incident;
· identify tactical measures which need to be considered during rapidly changing events including community engagement strategies and crisis communications techniques;
· identify best practices for developing and coordinating a large scale multi-discipline response to an event.
